Anna Kendrick: I’ll sleep when I’m dead

Anna Kendrick isn’t worried about how busy she is right now, adding she plans to “sleep when I’m dead”.

The 29-year-old actress has been kept busy in recent weeks thanks to filming duties on movies such as The Accountant, alongside Ben Affleck.

She’s also been travelling the world on the promo trail for Pitch Perfect 2.

But while Anna is run off her feet with her work commitments, she isn’t worried about the effect such a busy career is having on her sleep patterns.

“I do feel like it’s possible that I will age ten years in the next six months,” Anna told “But I’ll sleep when I’m dead, I don’t know!”

However, she did add in the interview: “I’m so tired!”

Anna has starred alongside some of the world’s hottest actors during her career so far, including George Clooney and Robert Pattinson.

But when it comes to her own movie star crush, Anna has only ever had eyes for one man – Vincent Kartheiser.

The 36-year-old found fame at a young age, before enjoying a career revival thanks to his role as Pete Campbell in Mad Men.

However, Anna admits she can’t quite understand how Vincent tones down his sex appeal to play the unattractive Pete.

“He was a teen idol, and when I saw him on Mad Men I was like, ‘I don’t understand, I don’t understand’ and really it’s a testament to what he can do to himself,” she said. “Like Leonardo DiCaprio can make himself super unattractive in movies, but he’s obviously very handsome, and [with] Vincent Kartheiser I was like, ‘How are you doing that? You’re so slimy in Mad Men and you were s**t-hot as a teenager’.”
